Hello from North Dallas

I'm an orange county boy that made it to Texas soon as I could and immediately married a motorcycle loving, truck building Texas girl. I just got my first bike, a 650 Vstar custom for a straight trade for a '85 lwb Chevy my wife and I were restoring. It was an even trade, nether vehicle ran. I cleaned the carbs and now the bike is running fine! I can't get back in my Camry now that I've gotten a bike, I love it! anybody want to drive around north Texas just give me a holler. I need practice for an iron butt.

I am up near Frisco in The Colony

If you up in my neck of the woods, I would like to find a few other riders to hang with.
I work nights but I can ride just about any day or weekend


Shoot me a PM

howdy. feel free to vote for bike of the month and submit your own for voting


and please take our census


where in TX are you? just rode around the three sisters last month. and i don't think anyone needs to practice for iron butt. i just think some proper planning and the right equipment and off you go.

I've got a windshield and brackets for $130 coming from a guy in Ohio and looking for a used backrest and then I'm all set for an iron butt, I'll probably go from McKinney west on 380 to west texas and back on a southern route. haven't gotten it all planned yet.

I'm in Mckinney, North east end of Dallas area.
